Understanding The Glutes

๐Ÿ”น This might sound strange, but see your glute muscles as a team. The gluteus Maximus is the team captain.

๐Ÿ”น They hold the foundation while offering stability to your hip when you walk, run and stand and move your hip back, side to side and in and out. They should be the strongest team of muscles in your body

๐Ÿ”น The Maximus is one of the muscles that everyone wants to develop. That can be done through hip extension (hip thrusts, deadlifts etc)

๐Ÿ”น Your Medius and Minimus are also important for hip health. They can both be worked with various abduction, external, and internal rotation movements.

๐Ÿ”น If you want to get solid glutes, focus on the big extension movements to start and add on the supplemental ones to finish off
